bid rigging and awarding contract above his approval limit while he was in office.
Omatseye is accused of approving contract above the threshold level of the agency. He was also convicted for bid rigging. Omatseye is also alleged to have warded contracts to company that was the highest bidder and not those pre-qualified for a contract.
The sentencing of Omatseye has generated a lot of talking among Nigerians who mostly feel 5 years is way too small for the gravity of his crime.We see young men getting 7 to 10 years for stealing 500,000 Naira,even less.So how could this man have gotten only 5 years for such a huge crime?
